The Contemporary Astrologer’s handbook by sue Tompkins,
states, ” The role of Pluto seems to be to remind us of nature’s laws; in particular, the laws of birth, death, decay, and renewal.
Pluto reminds us that civilized behavior is only a thin veneer and that lurking underneath is a planet full of animals, plants and minerals in varying stages of birth and death cycle.
At best the qualities associated with Pluto have strongly cleansing and purging quality to them.”
Pluto is like Mars and is concerned with survival.
